Cell phone users face U.K. road ban
Under current U.K. law, motorists using cell phones can only be prosecuted if they fail to keep proper control of their vehicle. If the new law passes, offending drivers will have points put on their license, and employers who let employees use handsets in cars during work hours also face prosecution. Independent research shows that drivers using cell phones are four times more likely to be involved in an accident.
